Easter mantle

i was so good about getting this mantle done .. right after micah's birthday.. and before i left for Jacksonville. just wasn't so good about sharing.

so for today... Happy Easter!
Happy Pastels!
Happy Eggs and Candy!

and Above All.. Be Happy About The Resurrection!


i didn't use the ribbon and tulle tied to yarn like this... but thought it was cute for garland!

yep.. that's all i did... tie ribbon and tulle to yarn!! cute, right?
here's a quick how i made the wreath...
*i found this wreath at a thrift store for .99 :) thought it was great b/c it's oval.. EGG!
*it needed color.... found that i had 6 .. yes 6 pink tanks of various fabrics, sizes and length of time owned. i could spare one.


* i cut strips of the tank and wrapped it around, using hot glue to secure it.

*I tied the yarn around the wreath and wrapped it loosely around.

* tied some pearly eggs ...

* Just Love It!*

* i also Glittered some large eggs .. you can sort of see in this pic. They look pretty :)


HAPPY EASTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
